excellent advice for beginner cryptoinvestors. However, not all people have sufficient knowledge in the field of programming and not everyone will be able to understand the security of the project or even the block chain itself, although you can search for knowledgeable people among your friends.

You can't be more correct, not everyone knows about the technicalities of these projects but a good intuition and discretion will help.
I agree with a good intuition and discretion will help. But for beginners they are not well-behaved and cautious, they are like the lonely boat in the sea, can not find the direction, this article for the novice, is already an article Guiding the direction of their light, good intuition and cautious need long-term formation.

The only things I might add is that "use a different password" isn't limited to exchanges, but applies to forums, emails, and even pools

I mean this makes some sort of real world sense. They also have a program where you can get free Viberate tokens for promoting their sites or referrals. Also adding new or artists not on their lists, adding venues, or adding upcoming events. I do not know if this is cryptocurrency that will be one to go to the moon. Any thoughts?

I haven't seen anybody post about what would be my biggest worry if I were trying out alternative block chains. I realize this may be perceived as "Gavin is FUD'ding anything that isn't bitcoin!"  (FUD == Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt)  But I think some of you might be forgetting some basic computer security fundamentals in the excitement to be early adopters.

When I first heard about bitcoin, my questions were:

1) Can it possibly work (do the ideas for how it works make sense)?
2) Is it a scam?
3) If it is not a scam, could it open my computer up to viruses/trojans if I run it?

I answered those questions by:

1) Reading and understanding Satoshi's whitepaper.  Then thinking about it for a day or two and reading it again.
2) Finding out everything I could about the project.  I read every forum thread here (there were probably under a hundred threads back then) and read Satoshi's initial postings on the crypto mailing list.
3) Downloaded and skimmed the source code to see if it looked vulnerable to buffer overflow or other remotely exploitable attacks.

If I were going to experiment with an alternative block-chain, I'd go through the same process again. But I'm an old conservative fuddy-duddy.

If you want to take a risk on a brand-new alternative block-chain, I'd strongly suggest that you:

1) Run the software in a virtual machine or on a machine that doesn't contain anything valuable.
2) Don't invest more money or time than you can afford to lose.
3) Use a different passphrase at every exchange site.


Very wonderful tips, but that recurring phrase 'you can afford to lose' , lol (LOL-laughing out loud).
It's a bit funny because if it's possible, no one would like to lose a dime, unless someone is a gambler.

If you have a significant amount of Bitcoins, I wouldn't run other clients on the same computer until the alternates have developed trust over a longer period of time

1) Run the software in a virtual machine or on a machine that doesn't contain anything valuable.


That's why I think it is better to hold coins that are risky on exchanges, rather than in software wallets.
